Dental students sporting donated items
Today we were at Lira Regional Referral Hospital located in Northern Uganda. Many might recognize Lira Town from documentaries on the "Invisible Children." It is safe to say the children are no longer invisible. The hospital beds are full of them. A very resourceful day as our volunteers performed dental procedures at Lira's Clinic, saw countless patients in the outpatient clinic and wards, and had the opportunity to teach students and interns. The lack of medical resources is clearly evident. International assistant at the facility would unquestionably decrease the morbidity and mortality.
